    Interesting way to ask it.
    If I am willing to forgive someone, I must be willing to forgive ALL. Forgiving half is not forgiving. I don't see any grey area here.
    It's an either/or situation.
    People trespass against me (us) all the time. I think it's a greet idea to live in an attitude of mercy and grace. That is, be prepared to forgive, long before any offences come. Whilst on that, I try to not allow offence to take root in me to start with. This makes forgiveness easy, because I don't have a lot of negative emotion to deal with on top of everything else.

    I was troubled by this some time ago. Forgiving is a very difficult thing to do. You can read my hub.

    Oh, I'm actually a pretty forgiving guy.  I've done so much to be forgiven for that I might as well forgive those who annoy me.  Anger is a very toxic emotion these days.  A group exists to "drive bad people nuts".  The angrier you get, the closer you come to "losing control" and in this age of ear-ringing mind-control, you might not get control back. 
          Because every human thought is "readable", the nicer your soul resonates: the less ear-ringing and electronic harassment you will receive.   The air is literally filled with toxic emotions:  rage, fear, lust.  To overcome these "fake emotions", focus on your ears and listen for the "Slower" Frequency.  Thinking really nice thoughts will help keep you on this "Higher Mind Channel".  If you can BECOME AS RIGHTEOUS AS POSSIBLE while focusing on this "Higher Ground", you won't have even ONE disturbing thought. 
         Visualize the "Salvation Frequency" as stalactites (the one's that grow on the upper-regions of caves).  Cling to these "waves" like your life depended on it.  This will allow you to escape being pulled down into the madness that has eaten so many of our people.  Remember to flex your "Righteousness Muscles", think GOOD, think NICE and be very forgiving.  When your ears are ringing and you have no access to headphones, this is the time to be the nicest person you possibly can be.  Those willing to give their lives for God are spared.  Don't let ANY sin so much as cross your mind under these circumstances.  The thought of the thought of sin can "open your door" and what follows will be the most detestable things taking place in your mind that you can imagine!

    I have an enemies list.  It is very short.  There will be no forgiveness ever.  I would never, in all of eternity, ever trust those individuals again.

    They may change.  I don't care.  They had best keep a great deal of distance between themselves and me.

    If they have improved their moral fibre, good for them, but keep away from me forever.

    I try to forgive everything. If we can't learn to forgive than we are no better than those that trespass against us. We will remain stuck because we are holding on to the act that defiled us. We can not fully move forward until we forgive. I wrote a hub on forgiveness, hope it is enlightening. http://hubpages.com/hub/To-Forgive-or-Not-to-Forgive

    On our own it is really hard to forgive, for we tend to keep grudges and all I myself find it hard to forgive smile
    But through the Lord's grace we can forgive knowing that we are all sinners in His eyes yet He dealt us not according to our many sins but according to His love and grace through Christ

    My moral is, 'Forgive, but never forget!' That way you do the right thing, yet don't get walked over twice by the same person!

    I can forgive, but will not forget.  Much like Butch News says, they better stay away from me. I won't be fooled twice.  So one can forgive but not forget--and be wiser for it.

    Generally speaking.............I can go a long way with a person.

    There is a limit..........do not insult those I love, do not insult my hospitality because it is less than what you are accustomed to.

    You are allowed to differ in your thinking, but you are not allowed to insult my own.

    Is this different from the most of people?

    Each 'trespass', or bad deed against me is treated individually, some may be forgiven where some may never be forgiven. All depends on the person who has done the deed and the severity of the deed.

    I put myself on their shoes....after thinking practically abt it.... If i find that the deed is morally wrong then i will not forgive them....And if i find that they have done this bcz of the situation and anyone wud have done this....then from inside i forgive them.......

    Bydway...its hard to forgive someone who has hurt u a lot....bt forgiveness gives a great satisfaction....!

    i'm not. forgiveness is man's biggest mistake. by forgiving people too often it gives thenm the sense of security in the things they do. if we paid back those that wronged us, they would think twice about wronging others.

    I only have to forgive for the particular incident, but don't do it again.

    Unlike Butch News I don't have a said enemy list and I do forgive but for myself  and my peace of mind.

    But like Butch News  "I would never, in all of eternity, ever trust those individuals again.

    They may change. I don't care. They had best keep a great deal of distance between themselves and me.

    If they have improved their moral fibre, good for them, but keep away from me forever."

    Once bitten,twice shy,threefold,you're outta there!
